Citizen’s Academy Offers Inside Look at Law Enforcement

Door County – The Door County Sheriff’s Office will host its first Citizen’s Law Enforcement Academy this fall. It’s designed to give community members a first-hand, up-close look at how the Door County Sheriff’s Office works, right from the men and women who are out there doing their job every day.

Various Sheriff’s Office members will share their wide variety of expertise during the free, 10-week program, which is set to begin Oct. 21 and run every Thursday until Dec. 30, 6-8:30 pm. (There will be no class on Thanksgiving.) 

Door County residents may participate on a first-come, first-served basis. Seating will be limited for what is expected to be a popular program. Applicants must be at least 18 years old and undergo a background check as part of the application process. 

Obtain an application and more details at, or contact the academy’s coordinator, Captain Carl Waterstreet, at 920.746.2595 or [email protected]. Applications are also available at the Door County Sheriff’s Office, 1201 S. Duluth Ave. in Sturgeon Bay. Applications are due to the Sheriff’s Office by Wednesday, Oct. 13, 4:30 pm.
